. and the cold war is not done yet. it's not just the fall of china. it's not just the united states cozying up to japan. but it's going to explode the cold war is going to heat up if you will, in korea. now, remember the last lecture, world war ii? we talked about korea being occupied by japan. once the war is over, the united states and the soviet union decide to divide korea with the united states being in control of the southern part of korea, the soviet union is going to be administering the northern part of korea. eventually, both u.s. and ussr agree that we will withdraw and allow the koreans to have some degree of self-determination. we're going to pull out, soviet union's going to pull out. the koreans will be able to determine their future and their fate. and we both did. the difference is, when we pulled out, we basically took everything with us. when the soviet union pulled out, they left behind a stockpile of weapons. the most modern military technology that they had at the time, and that's the temptation that was going to be used the following summer, 1950, north korea with the us
's not just the united states cozying up to japan. it's going to explode the cold war and it will heat up in korea. now remember the last lecture of world war ii. we talked about korea being occupied by japan. once the war is over, the united states and the soviet union decide to divide korea with the united states being in control of the southern part of korea and the sev yet union is going to be administering the northern part of korea. eventually both u.s. and uss r agree we will withdraw and allow them to have a degree of self determination. we are going pull out and the soviet union will and the koreans will be able to determine their future and fate. we both did. the difference is when we pulled out, we took everything with us. when the soviet union pulled out, they left a stockpile of weapons. the most mot earn technology they had at the time. that's a temptation that was going to be used. the following summer with the use of soviet military armaments, they will innovate and try to take possession of the country. this is what they had warned us about. they are going to expand into
spies in the united states. they passed information along that we were working on it and close to it. he knew we were very close to having a successful nuclear weapon. well, what truman is going to do then is to give the japanese an opportunity to surrender when they don't. we talked about this and dropped two. first on hiroshima august sixth when there was no surrender. we dropped the second on august 9th and eventual low the japanese surrendered. i mentioned to you, the primary reason why truman dropped it was to save american lives. the estimates of americans, what was the casualty if we were going to invade as high as a million american casualties. exactly. that was the primary reason. today i will give you a secondary reason. it's possible that he decided to drop the bomb not just to save lives, but to signal a shift and to send stalin a completely different message about the role of the u.s. and the relationship with the soviet union. we are going drop the bomb to send you a signal that there is a new sheriff in town. roosevelt is dead and cooperation is dead. harry truman will hav
a change. missouri's own harry truman now becomes president of the united states. very interesting circumstances, obviously. we are just about to wrap up the war in europe. we are i land hopping our way into japan. i mean, it looks promising and yet, there are all kinds of pot holes along the way. we still have to finish the defeat of germany. we still have to finish off japan. how we do that, when we do that, and what are the consequences of what we're doing, that's the rest of the story. truman is going to meet with stalin and churchill in potsdam, germany, after hitler is defeated. i mean, it's a new big three now with harry truman being the president now instead of roosevelt. truman's attitude is going to be very different from that of roosevelt. and some indication of that change of u.s. policy comes right away. remember i mentioned to you that even vice president harry truman had not been kept informed of the manhattan project. one of them is, there's a few things you need to know. we've been working on a bomb. it's the biggest, baddest bomb around. here in potsdam, truman ge
of real significance to the united states. to do that, we will dedicate 80% of our effort to four major cases. right now they are syria, kenya, north/central america and burma. then we'll have another eight to ten places where we can test new approaches or make a welcome difference by just sending the the right person at the right time. so far i think we're gaining traction in each of our major priority engagements. many of you are working in these places, and we realize that we won't know it all or know best about them, so we hope for your support. in syria we are providing a nontraditional surge to empower and unite a fractured, nonviolent opposition. as the secretary announced, that includes providing nonlethal assistance. we are also working with partners to set up an outpost for the internal opposition to coordinate and communicate with the international community. in kenya we are helping to develop plans to insure peaceful and credible elections a year before the vote. incidentally, kenya is one place where we've seen a potential model for broad cooperation and innovation. in nort
, this is in the security interests of the united states. over the past four years we of issued four report . the most recent was on february 1. as jason indicated, it included a distinguished panel of democratic members of congress, three retired generals and admirals, and distinguished foreign policy and energy experts. the last report reinforced the view we have always held is that the best approach to this crisis is a simultaneous pursuit of a triple track policy, which is diplomacy, tough sanctions, and credible, in visible military threat, and also, we issued a white paper in the past couple of months on each of those tracks. i will quickly highlight one recommendation on each of those, and then i will turn it over to mort zuckerman. sanctions, the progress of the nuclear program to determine the degree to which sanctions are forcing iran to slow down the clear development. we believe the united states should boost the credibility of its own and israel's military threat to iran as a nuclear facility. we have spelled out how to do so, and one element has been selling israel bunker busters' and ae
states. hispanic children are at the highest level of poverty in the history of the united states. i think the challenge is not how to bring them over to immigration reform or dialogue. just to make sure the latino community knows these facts and understands the failure of president obama. >> i agree with you there is a lot of ammunition. these comments about self deportation have indicated to some in the community he does not have respect for them. go to south texas and talk to latino ranch and farm owners and small businesses and members of the hispanic community. they are hard asses because they are the first to feel the adverse affect. cartels are shooting at them. are competing for jobs. there are a lot of reasons why they are hard asses but they do want to know the presidential candidate has respect for the community and in recognition this is not all a mexican problem. half the people here illegally came from hong kong the, nigeria on a visa and overstating it. the fact that all the people from central america are unworthy is a real problem. >> thank you. >> we will get behind
water. and now, it's an expectation. narrator: over 300 million people live in the united states. and each person uses an average of 100 gallons of water every day. man: what it takes to actually make clean water is somewhat a mystery to most customers. woman: so how does water get from the river into your house, or here at school? woman: somebody has to bring that water to us, and somebody has to take it away when we're finished with it. man: the water infrastructure is vital for disease protection, fire protection, basic sanitation, economic development, and for our quality of life. man: you just can't visualize all the assets that are under our feet. we have about two million miles of pipe in this nation. if you're walking around in an urban area, you're probably stepping on a pipe. man: our grandparents paid for, and put in for the first time, these large distribution systems. woman: and in many cases, it's not been touched since. man: we're at a critical turning point. much of that infrastructure is wearing out. narrator: our water infrastructure is made up of complex, under
weight in the alliance and that europe and nato is heavily subsidized by the united states. if my view, this is a rather simplified and distorted view, not only of the nato budgetary process and how the public good of security shared, funded and measured in an alliance. nonetheless, having said that over the years, there have been many colorful warnings that describe these capabilities gap and the unequal burden sharing, and the number of speeches last year, robert gates probably did more than most to revive this debate, though for me i rather like one of the latest comments which robert kaplan referred to in an article last week. he cited a u.s. air force planner who was clearly exasperated by the shortfalls in key european capabilities during the libya intervention, and he described nato as like snow white and the 27 dwarfs. so the billion dollar question is this, can the smart defense approach a pooling of resources and integration of transatlantic, especially european military procurement to ensure the alliance retains needed capabilities even at a time when the allies are making d
to be the same page as the united states, though, right? the united states would accept a little bit more, right? >> i don't think that's the united states' position. i think it's confined enrichment to 5%, limited to the medical isotopes. move anything above 5% out of the country or secure it, have full transparency and 24/7/365 day a year access for the iaea to all these sites. and then be willing to also talk about other things, which is what the iranians have wanted to do. i am hopeful. in my view it's the best chance of a solution. of course this is the p-5 plus one, so it's a unique bargaining agent, you might say. >> when you talk about access, i want to ask you about israel in a second, israel issue, but access. i have this picture which i know looks a little strange. the associated press obtained this from a government that is skeptical of iran's honesty in its nuclear program and they say this is a chamber used for testing explosives of nuclear weapons. we did make some calls and experts did say indeed this could be consistent with that but we haven't skbant independe identified the so
've been pushing for cuts in military spending here in the united states and throughout europe for a decade or more. so i see it all as great news. i just want to be clear about that. because i see the problem here. and folks coming from europe, from asia, come to the united states, and they realize it immediately when they go into a restaurant. and they see the size of the entree that is are served here. and they realize we have a problem with portion control here the united states. and it's no surprise that we have a problem with obesity. and it's not just the quantity of food that we eat. it's the quality of food that we eat. we eat a lot of junk food. and you're thinking right now maybe i've come to the wrong conference by accident. but no, there is i think a strong connection between our attitudes towards food and our attitudes toward the pentagon. the pentagon has gone an enormous eating spree over the last decade and has grown enormous. and this conversation about what is it for has not taken place. yes, we haven't had a conversation among nato allies about why we should be cutting t
, not simply the united states moving ahead with the epaa. the nato system is anticipated to bring more to the table than the epaa. the epaa is, no question, the core of nato missile defense. but i think the vision is that over time, countries will be able to add on capabilities to it. we now have a situation where we have countries coming forward with contributions, the netherlands has indicated that it will be upgrading some of its frig it's to add missile defense radar. germany is contributing patriots. different countries are trying to figure out -- france is working on early warning, ways in which they can contribute to the system. but it was in lisbon we have reached phase one, and we will declare this capability interim-capable at the summit in chicago. >> i would like to warn those who use this obesity analogy, that that's a very, very dangerous path to go down. if we look back the past 20 years, my big concern is that actually, we have started spending the peace dividend too fast and too early, too happily. and so i think we just have to get back to the understanding that this
of the united states has actually been under fire while president of the united states, so abraham lincoln here, standing on the parapet looking out to see where the enemy troops actually were. >> you can watch this and other american artifacts programs site, and watch american artifacts every sunday at 8:00 a.m., 7:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. >>> the john f. kennedy presidential library convened a discussion on jfk and civil rights. in this discussion, this panel is discussing the president's actions on civil rights. this program is just over one hour. >> so, if we could have your attention. we'll now go to our next panel on the presidencies of john f. kennedy and lyndon baines johnson. so now it is afternoon. good afternoon. and remembering that we're honoring two presidents, george washington and abraham lincoln. here is a little something from abraham lincoln that seems fit for this afternoon. the probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just. that seems to be very appropriate for our conversation
in 1983, we must make sure that any adversary who thinks about attacking the united states or our allies or our vital interests concludes that the risks to him outweigh any potential gains. i don't believe that creating a u.s. military with no margin for error is the best way to assure our allies or to deter our potential enemies. and that's what i'm worried about. america and the world are safer and more prosperous when the u.s. maintains military power and strength beyond challenge. and i think it is the preeminent purpose of today's hearing as much as possible in this unclassified context to drill down and ensure congress and the american people that they understand the risk of this budget that we would incur with what you have proposed today and to our war fighters and to our country. finally, secretary panetta has described the defense sequestration cuts as catastrophic, inflicting severe damage to our national defense for generations. he compared the cuts to shooting ourselves in the head. even with these compelling statements, i'm still amazed that congress has not mustered the co
democracy in the united states when you have senators and congressmen who sit 20, 30 years in the seats and you have now putin let's say 12 years in office. so they ask me very simple question. define what is democracy. >> you're asking vlad to define it if? >> can i just piggyback on that and put it in a somewhat different way that add this to your answer which is talk a little bit about what unites the opposition and the extent to which the opposition is made up of democrats as opposed to important segments of the population who oppose putin because they're two different things, being for a more democratic society, a more liberal society which is a slice of the yanic lek tore rat, but certainly much of what we read here, elements of the elements of the protesters and elements among those who have organized the protests are by no means appear bill no means to be liberals and at best have quite dubious democratic credentials in the sense that we in the west would think. drill down a little bit into the nature of the opposition as a democratic movement and elements that may be somewhat d
, will be revitalized and refocused on article v. the united states has f-16 training programs in poland and will retain a base in romania so there is just a few examples of the steps that we have taken as a nation as an alliance to reassure our eastern allies. there is more that can be done but i think those important first step so i've laid out these four problems in my argument is that at the summit and within nato, we are taking steps to deal with all of those problems. doesn't it doesn't mean they go away. but steps are taken to deal with them. >> thank you, madam. >> thank you all very much. i want to start dr. binnendijk with your comments amount missile defense and as mr. brzezinski mentioned earlier, this month we heard russia suggest that they might use preemptive force against missile installations if there is not a topic of agreement reached with nato. do you think this is just posturing? do you think there are -- this represents a heightened -- a heightened threat on the part of russia to oppose the missile defense installation or should we just expect more rhetoric and continue as you sugg
in the united states. if a citizen gets "droned" by accident the air force can hold on to the evidence for months. thank you, government. speaking of the government's key witness in a perjury trial against the foam all star pitch el roger clemens, took the stand and he says he personally injected the rocket with performance enhancing drugs over several years. plus, workers at a library called the cops and they threatened charge for $81 worth of overdue library fines against a four-year-old girl. tough guys. all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. >> but, first, from fox at 3:00 this monday afternoon, a new generation of surveillance drones can soon be watching us all from overhead, the federal aviation administration is expected to announce plans to expand the use of domestic drones in american airspace. eyes in the sky, similar to the unmanned aircraft that the united states has been using to target terrorists abroad. here at home the surveillance can be used to track terrorists or drug dealers or to find missing children, or locate wandering alzheimer's disease patients. l
of the united states, mitt romney [applause] >> thank you so very much. good thank you for the very powerful and moving and emotional introduction. thank you for your friendship. . pastor, thank you. faculty and staff and distinguished guests, parents and friends, and graduating seniors from liberty, for the graduates, this marks a clear ending and a clear beginning. did the task set before you four years ago is completed in full. to the class of 2012, well done and congratulations. i am told some of you may have taken longer than four years to complete your studies. good one of them said he completed its in only two terms, clinton costs and bush's. i share this with kathy. the romney campaign comes to a sudden stop when we spot a chick-fil-a. it is comfort food during the campaign season. and we needed a lot of comfort. congratulations on your honor today. [applause] of course, there are some people here who are even more pleased than the graduates. that would be their parents. their years of prayers and devotions and investment have added up to this joyful achievement. -- devotion and inve
not understand why some people think that russia is the no. 1 adversary of the united states, we need russia and afghanistan. russia is helping us to resupply our forces in afghanistan. we have an interest in promoting counter-terrorism cooperation in russia. i was thinking that iran, right now the no. 1 national security issue of the united states is the iranian nuclear future. if you look at that constructs, russia is the most important country at the table for the united states. china will not be helpful. the european powers, of course, have a limited influence. if there is going to be an endgame on iran, where we convince them not to start -- not to stop short, they will have a lot to do with that solution. there will be a very close u.s.- russian interplay and cooperation on iran. meaning that the nato russian relationship is critically important. the promise of 10 years ago when we created the summit in italy, that promise has not been fulfilled. i would think a major order of business for the u.s. and germany is to bring back a good working relationship with the russian government. ve
in the united states. it is a historical japanese- style garden, originally billed as a village for the 1894 midwinter international exposition. after the exposition, a japanese-american partner along with john mclaren converted the exhibition into a permanent park. he over saw the building as the teagarden and was the official caretaker from -- until 1925. he requested the people of japan 1000 flooring cherry trees to be imported and other plants and birds and goldfish. his family lived in the garden until 1942. when under executive order 906, he was forced to relocate to an internment camp with thousands of other japanese american families. this barden was renamed the oriental tea garden and it fell into a state of disrepair. in the 1950's, we had moved forward and the rec and park renamed it the japanese tea garden. the first concessionaire was jack -- who many here had the incredible opportunity to honor. and we're very incredibly pleased to be planning -- planting a cherry tree from the consul general. the cherry blossom tree planting has become a tradition that allows us to reflect on
and on jobs and what they see in the united states senate today led by democrats is something that you mentioned earlier and that is the fact that we budget inssed a put in three three years. it has become dysfunctional and more recently a place where the presidential campaign has sort of been litigated. they moved the presidential campaign to the floor of the united states senate. we continue to have votes nothing about political messaging. talking about the buffett tax rule and the interest rate on student loans which needs to be addressed but they want to do it in a way that republicans can't support. the reason it is not functioning today is because it has been converted into something that is about political gimmicks rather than about involving problems. the people run aring across the country are talking about spending, they are talking about debt and jobs and talking about the economy which are all things on the hearts and minds of the american people and we need people to come to washington who are are serious about addressing those challenges. many of us in the united states
, vice chief of staff of the united states air force. welcome, general. >> madam chairman, senator ayotte, distinguished members of the subcommittee, thank you for your opportunity to be here today and tell our air force story. these are challenging times, and i commend you for your leadership and your efforts to ensure we have the best equipped and best trained military on the globe. it's an honor to be here to serve on behalf of our 690,000 active duty, guard, and reserve civilian airmen who serve alongside their soldiers, sailors, marine and coast guardsmen. i would like this time to share important items with you today. first, the readiness of your airmen after more than 20 years of continuous combat ops. and second, the steps we're taking to ensure a superbly trained and equipped force which is ready to support our new strategic guidance, and bottom line, to avoid a hollow force while balancing risk. the american people are fully aware that our nation has been at war for over a decade. for our air force, however, we've been conducting combat ops continuously for well over two decades
the conflict between the united states and the soviet union. we're going to emerge from world war ii as the two great global super-powers. this is a struggle between the u.s. and ussr for global extreme si. it is a cold war, simply because we, the united states, do not come into direct military conflict with the soviet union. we're going to be battling them all around the world for global supremacy. but never directly. this is the most important foreign policy issue of the last half of 20th century, the cold war. it encompasses the fall of china, communism, korea, vietnam, all kinds of topics we'll talk about over the next couple of weeks. so it not only has a foreign component, we're also going to talk today about what's going on, the effects of the cold war here at home. and we'll talk about presidential elections, about a domestic issue, known as the red scare, sort of the second red scare. and how the united states is sort of going to be gripped with suspicions and paranoias about all things communist. a lot of ground to cover today in terms of foreign policy and domestic policy. all right.
will be the smallest we have been since the inception of the united states air force in 1947. our aircraft are old, older than they've ever been, with the average age of our fighters at 22 years, bombers at 35 years, and tankers, the oldest of the fleet, at 47 years. what really concerns me is the challenges we face to get our full spectrum training. we are proficient in the current counterinsurgency fight. we have had to put high-end full spectrum training on the back burner, which has the greatest effect on our combat air forces. other more recent concerns are the increase in fuel prices and the higher than expected overseas contingency operations costs. together they have resulted in a current-year bill that is significantly greater than we expected. we are working hard with dod leadership to address the shortfall to avoid actions that might harm readiness. but if unable to reallocate funds with congressional approval, we will have little choice to shift resources within our operational and maintenance accounts, which could have detrimental effects on our readiness. despite these fiscal pressur
that the united states is much more diverse geographically and we face a much broader variety of threats, whether it be earthquakes on the west coast or hurricanes on the east and the gulf or tornadoes in the midwest. it makes it more challenging in the united states because it almost prepare bing by region o state as opposed to countrywide. i would say there are some best practices in japan and mitigation would be a great example where the buildings are built to withstand earthquakes in japan and the devastation would have been far greating had they not been built to withstand earthquakes. luckily we did the same things in california and other states prone to earthquakes. the building code is much stronger in california than it is new york for earthquakes. we remain very vulnerable to the black swan or low probability, high-consequence events, for example, that earthquake in new york because there are not mitigation strategies in place. those buildings cannot withstand a imagine earthquake in a metropolitan new york. it will be devastating in like a third world country where they have far greate
of independence for women. it marked the beginning of the women's equality movement in the united states. >> at that time, women were banned from holding property and voting in elections. >> susan b. anthony dedicated her life to reform. >> suffrage in the middle of the 19th century accomplished one goal, it was diametrically opposed to this idea. >> many feared it would be corrupted by politics. >> women in the 19th century had to convince male voters that having the vote would not change anything. that woman would still be devoted to the home, the family, that they would remain pure and innocent, that having the vote would not corrupt them. >> support gradually grew in state and local campaigns. >> leaders like ellen clark sgt come repeatedly stopping these meetings -- , repeatedly stopping these meetings as a politically active figure. doing everything they could to ground the campaign in domesticity. >> despite their efforts, the link made it tough whenever voters were in the big city. a specialist in francisco. >> the problem with san francisco is that women's suffrage as an idea wa
of japan. and also the earthquake caused a massive tsunami and put us in relative term to the united states. then the affected area is about the length between the distance between boston and washington, d.c. i have to point out that this area does not have a high number of population in japan. but still this region, we have 3.9 million people living in this area. and also more than one million people suffered in this disaster. and also we lost about 20 people in this disaster. 20,000 people, i'm sorry. i would like to show you some pictures that are significantly affected by this disaster. so this place is called rikuzen-takata. about 20,000 people in population. this is a before and after picture in takata city. and the high surge of about 20 meter. hit in this area. this is before the tsunami. you can see that how large the damage was after the disaster. and this is ishinomaki city. the population was about 16,000 people. the main industry in this area was fishery. and high surges of more than ten meters hit. and unfortunately, we lost about 4,000 people. that was the overview of the dis
. although subsidies is a big issue in the united states i realize for other industries as well. but i think for the financial industry, it was a big factor allowing them to grow and take on greater risk. >> thank you. before i move on, dr. hoenig, i'd like to submit for the record a speech in 1999. you talked about the wave of mega merger and the problem of too big to fail. you were pretty accurate there. without objections, i'd like to submit that. a few years ago, you said that when gramly whooi lee act, the five biggest banks held 38% of the assets in the financial industry. that had grow to 52%. i'd like to ask each of you a three-part question. tell me what the growth and consolidation has meant in three ways. one, for the management seek in to understand the companies they are running. so this huge growth, what it means to people actually in charge of running these institutions. second, to the authorities monitoring these risks. how have the regulators been able to both understand and regulate these much-larger entities. and third, what it's meant to the community banks that are compe

.com/1series. great financing available >> shepard: the united states military can use drones to spy on you right here in america as long as it's not on purpose. that's the word that comes from a newly leaked air force document. it states that if drones inadvertently capture images of americans the pentagon can hold on to those images for up to 90 days while the pentagon decides what to do with them. the constitution says you can't do any of that that's just as the federal government is putting out new rules for drones that fly over the united states. right now relatively few drones are actually flying over the u.s. the border patrol uses 9 of them, they he will tell it us. some local police departments have drone licenses as well. but by the year 2020, the feds are now projecting there could be, get, this 30,000 drones patrolling our skies. 30,000 of them. the chief fox report correspondent jonathan hunt is with us now. jonathan, what exactly are all of those drones supposed to be doing? >> supposed to be involved in a whole host of law enforcement activities helping out in hostage
in the world. money is coming into the united states. the dollar is up 11 days in a row. we haven't seen that in three and a half years. look at that rally in the last month in the dollar. of course a lot of money going into bonds. stocks not so much a beneficiary, nonetheless here the markets not coming down as much as the rest of the world. the one sector i would point out before i get your point, financials really aren't moving. >> that was going to be my point. >> yeah. look. jpmorgan was below 36 at one point. morgan, citi group, wells fargo, it's not doing anything today. >> do you think the underpinnings of the market will allow it to move forward without the financials or not? >> no. it's going to have a real hard time. i'll tell you why. a big part of the earnings in the second half of the year. we were expecting an earnings push up in the second half of the year. largely in technology and energy stocks. if they don't contribute, we're going to have a problem. >> bob, see you in just a minute. over to you and matt. >> matt will be hanging with us on "power lunch" for the week. h
